Help me with a name!!!

I will be 36 weeks tomorrow and still haven't completely decided on a name for my LO. I have a bunch of options I am toying with. My preferences: I don't want a "trendy" name (a name that lots of other girls her age will have when she goes to school) or a "unisex" name (one that can be a girl's or a boy's). I want a unique girly name. Please feel free to give me any ideas you might have if you don't like my options.

ETA I don't really like Sydney anymore because I think it is GN name (please feel free to argue with me if you don't agree) and I don't really like Cassandra because it means "entangler of men" or something like that. . .

I love Evelyn! It is beautiful and even though it is old fashioned I pictured someone beautiful and powerful.

Re: Help me with a name!!!

My advice is to keep the list on you, not stress out about it, and when she's born, pick the name that seems the most fitting to her. I had about 10 names listed and when my dd was born I just *knew* what her name was.

Re: Help me with a name!!!

I had a friend who when their DD was born had a few names picked out. The first one they called her she cried at but when they tried the second name she calmed down and that became her name.

Re: Help me with a name!!!

I picked Evelyn Joy.

How about Anya Joy (I think Anya means grace so Grace and Joy...two things you experience with childbirth)

Nickname could be Ani (like Ani DeFranco)

Re: Help me with a name!!!

Mackayla of any variation is way too popular for me. karena is actually a name we had picked out if DS was going to be a girl... We would have spelt it a little differently though. It is an Italian term of endearment and I am Italian so it is all me! I also hate popular names and DH picked DD#2's name. BLEH! She just started school today and there are 2 other Addisons, Adelin and Adeline...all go by Addie. I hate it!
